Britain's Special Air Service is the Special Forces regiment upon which all others are based. Its men comprise one of the most skilful, highly trained and motivated soldiers in the world. Now ex-SAS sergeant Eddie Stone (SAS - Are You Tough Enough?) reveals what it takes to be an SAS man and how the skills possessed by SAS soldiers enable them to accomplish even the most difficult and hazardous military missions. The SAS is made up of four Sabre Combat Squadrons. Each of these is comprised of four specialist Troops - Air, Boat, Mobility and Mountain. Together they enable the SAS to tackle any mission virtually unaided. A Sabre Squadron essentially possesses the combined skills of a small army in a unit of less than one hundred men. Using ex-SAS men, SAS Survival Secrets: Sabre Squadron is a vivid and detailed recreation of a typical mission calling upon all four Troops of the Squadron. The Squadron must capture and extract a wanted war criminal from his residence in a hostile country... At every stage of the mission, combat and tactical options are explored, along with a detailed look at the equipment being used including the Gemini assault craft, 'Pinkie' Land rover and 'Gimpy' General Purpose Machine Gun. Eddie Stone and his team also reveal the extraordinary qualities every SAS soldier must possess, by reviewing the rigorous Regiment selection and training regime.
